|Rover Armoured Car||Related page: Dingo light scout car.|
|Based on a Ford cab 12 F60L chassis, the Australian Rover Armoured car was not a big success, being overweight and having poor cross-country performance, only 238 were built from late 1941. There were two basic variants, the Mk 1, or long wheelbase and Mk2 which used a shortened F60L chassis of 134 1/4".
With a crew of 5 they earned the knickname of "mobile slit trench" because of their appearance. Their main use was in crew training.
